Expressing optimism about a major role for the AIADMK in national politics, Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Monday said, “Tomorrow’s India will be in our hands.” She was reacting to the assertion of party leaders who vowed to work hard to make her the country’s Prime Minister.

The AIADMK supremo, while concluding her speech at Srirangam, said “Our ideals are lofty. Our vision is clear. Our victory is certain. With your (people’s) support, tomorrow’s India will be in our hands.”

While devoting a major portion of the speech to the development works in the constituency, the Chief minister ended her speech with a flourish by her confident declaration, which met with a spontaneous and thunderous applause from partymen and the public.

She also attacked DMK leader M Karunanidhi and his son Stalin stating that they were indulging in a false propaganda that the schemes announced by her would not be implemented.

When she pointed out that 127 schemes out of the 136 announced by her in the Assembly had been implemented and cited a few examples, Karunanidhi himself indirectly admitted that the schemes had been implemented.

Laying foundation stone for the projects worth Rs 1,752.69 crore and inaugurating 923 completed projects, the Chief Minister expressed satisfaction over the projects she had executed in Srirangam constituency.

In a move to create more employment opportunities in the region, Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa announced here on Monday that a Rs 107 crore Industrial park would come up in an area of 1,077 acre waste land.

This is expected to provide employment opportunity to at least 25,000 youth.

Laying the foundation stone for projects worth Rs 1,752.69 crore, and inaugurating 923 completed projects, the Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa expressed satisfaction over the projects she had executed in Srirangam constituency.

The Chief Minister said that during her first visit to Srirangam in June 2011, she laid foundation for projects to the tune of Rs 190.18 crore, and during her second visit on February 2012, she laid foundation for Rs 160.21 crore, while during the third visit on September 2012, Rs 82.63 crore worth projects were initiated.

Of the total Rs 433.03 crore worth projects initiated by the Chief Minister, projects worth Rs 65 crore have been completed and dedicated to the people so far.
